Now, there is just so much more that you can do in wellies that you can't do in a beautiful country boot, but not... Continue Reading →

We went to... Continue Reading →

I am delighted to announce that from March 2017; I, the Wimpiest Eventer that ever trotted the earth, will be the VERY... Continue Reading →

Hoorah for Hunting!!

So let's go back to this morning... I got up and drove to the yard unphased at this point, to skip out, hay and not think about the day ahead. Back at home I actually ate breakfast... grilled mushrooms, tomato, avocado and a poached egg (still on the post Christmas diet). The Kent and Surrey... Continue Reading →
